Carbonate Reservoirs and Seismic Characterization


Course Description

  • This course is designed to cover the basics of carbonate reservoir and more advanced notions of reservoir characterisation. Participants will be introduced to the basic concepts of sedimentology, diagenesis, pore geometry, and sequence stratigraphy and their implications on reservoir characterisation.

Course Objectives

  • Understanding the integration between static and dynamic data in a coherent and consistent manner.
  • Characterising the reservoir rock types.
  • Building a geological framework with a zonation scheme.
  • Understanding how to integrate seismic and faults in the reservoir framework.
  • Using deterministic and stochastic algorithms to propagate petro physical properties in three-dimensions.
  • Learning the process of ranking realisations and perform averaging and upscaling of properties.

Who Should Attend?

  • Petroleum engineers.
  • Technical/reservoir engineers.
  • Drilling engineers.
  • Processing engineers.
  • Commercial analysts.
  • Decision makers/ investors in oil and gas sector.
